Hi I'm looking for a job,,I'm very creative in art work,,I can show you if I can show you
I went to the Wonki Ware shop this morning at Broadacres. The selection was fantastic, but mostly the staff were amazing. They were really friendly, and kind and helpful. We left very happy customers and will definitely come back again.
I'm so sad - I broke one of my Baroque Lace dinner plates and they have been discontinued. Taking a huge chance, but if anyone has one lying around that they want to sell I would gladly take it off your hands!
Hi there, I would like to pick up some nice things. Are you open on 24 th of december? Or where else to find? I am in the regio till 28 th. Thx a lot!!!

Hi, it is very difficult to find wonki ware in copenhagen. there is only one small shop which orders only twice a year. I have bought 12 pieces of this beautiful handcrafted dining ware recently and I want to buy more. Can any one advice about how can I order online directly?
Hi Di - no pun intended!!! Just a quick question about your beautiful wares - do you perhaps supply on consignment? I run a new Stall in Jansenville and am looking for extraordinary products to showcase and sell. Please look us up at Ark in the Karoo farm stall. Would love to hear from you.

Di Marshall Pottery: South African Dinnerware and Table Accessories now sold in the USA I live in a small town called George along the Garden Route in South Africa.

I started a small studio in the town centre about 10 years ago purely to keep myself occupied while my children where at school. We lived on a farm at the time and had to travel quite a distance everyday so I thought it would be good idea to work in my pottery studio in the morning, collect my children and go back to the farm in the afternoon. I happily started working and slowly attracted the attention of the local community. Before long my little studio became a meeting place for other potters and people that enjoyed being creative. About the same time a young Xhosa man named Artwel started arriving every morning looking for work. I did not have much money at this stage to pay him, but he was willing to do anything, so I started teaching him about clay. I devised a method of making pottery that Artwel could duplicate from my shapes that I had originally created. To our delight he started producing very sensitively worked platters and bowls. I began developing patterns that were relatively easy and simple to reproduce but at the same capturing a sensitivity in pattern and design. Another person that became invaluable to our team walked into the studio one day and painted a plate and I knew I had to have her join our team. Les, Artwel and I became a formidable pottery team. Our energy and enthusiasm had people from all over the country popping into buy our pottery. The word had spread from Cape Town to Johannesburg and before long we had orders that we could not keep up with. At about this time Janice joined our team and became our first agent and before long we had our pottery showcased in some on the most prestigious stores in South Africa. We have been in operation for about 10 years and are presently employing 40 people from disadvantaged backgrounds. They are all now skilled employers and are valuable, contributing members in their communities. Our skilled potters are now training new comers in the art of making Wonki Ware and I feel confident that this is being achieved successfully. It is with pleasure and pride that I feel I can hand over this side of the business to my employees. Wonki Ware is a product that got developed purely by chance. It was born from a collective energy of 3 people whose excitement and enthusiasm were boundless. It still amazes me today what we unintentionally created. The vibrant, warm spirit of Africa is clearly visible in our pottery and I thank our potters and South Africans for their enthusiasm and love for what we do. Love Di Marshall

Operating as usual

We’d like to pay tribute to a man who was instrumental in introducing Wonki Ware to the world through the Conran Shops, starting with their London shop. Since 2008 we have been working with Conran, and have had a very successful easy relationship with the Conran brand. Terrence Conran was an icon in his field and transformed the way we live in our homes today. He introduced the world to a new way of looking at home interiors, bringing beauty and style into everyday life.

For this week's “Special Selection” I have chosen a bowl from our SCRAFFITO collection. Sgraffito is an age old technique where clay is carved out to make the desired imagery. Our simplistic dash design is washed with natural tones to emphasize the vibrancy of the pattern and the beautifully shaped bowl.

Only R240 per bowl, while stocks last
